We are pleased to invite you to contribute to a collection of research papers (Special Issue «Advances in Cryogels» Journal Gels) related to novel methods of cryogel preparation, new approaches of physical characterisation and chemical modification of cryogel surface, molecular imprinted (MIP) cryogels, separation of biomolecules using via ligand exchange mechanism (chelation) and ion exchange; nano and microparticles elimination, macroporous hydrogels acceptable for selective or nonselective extraction of noble metal ions; smart porous polymers based on inter and or polyelectrolyte complexes. Methods of preparation of composite cryogels composed of metal nanoparticles or metal oxide nanoparticles and polymers; usage of nontoxic modified cross-linking agents for synthesis of biocompatible scaffolds for biomedical application. Smart cryogels utilized for desalination of water. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following: Composite cryogels with given properties for biosensing; cryogels for efficient radionuclides separation or extraction; cryogels polymer-metal systems for catalysis. Cryogels as a drug delivery system.
